About this grant
Established in 1970, the Ecology Center works locally, statewide and nationally on a range of issues including clean energy, toxic-free materials, and sustainable food systems. With this grant, the grantee will work with K-12 schools across Michigan to reduce energy use, adopt renewable energy systems, and integrate energy issues into related curriculum. The grantee will do so by strengthening and expanding an existing network of 67 schools, developing pilot projects in up to four schools, and exploring ways to advance the work into a self-sustaining, social enterprise.
